My father used to say, "You are the luckiest SOB I have ever known." An objective review of my life confirms his observation. And yet, my basic aspy nature is not to trust - regardless of how things are going. I am wondering if any of you have similar feelings. I have trouble letting go of control and collaborating with others. I used to do everything myself, because I didn't trust others (not even God) to do things up to my standards and attention to detail. I have spoken with others who have felt the same way. In the last few years, I have forced myself to collaborate with other teachers, my students and their families. It's hard for me to admit, but the results have been better than if I had done everything myself albeit different from what I had originally conceived. I am now a big advocate of collaborative endeavors. Nevertheless, my aspergers prevents me from trusting the future, and trusting that people won't see, understand or value my need for order and routine. Do you ever feel like your view of the world is invisible to the NT people in your life?
